Join Laundry Workers Center to celebrate and raise critical funds for the only organization in New York City organizing laundromat workers, and winning worker-led campaigns! We will celebrate these recent victories and share information about an ongoing laundry workers campaign that we launched in June 2018.
The event theme is 500 Years of Resistance, which honors our member-workers, many of whom are part of indigenous communities, and pays respect to the long legacy of resistance to colonialism and genocide in the Americas. There will be food from La Essencia Restaurant NYC, drinks, and music.

Where: St. Peter's Church, 619 Lexington Ave (btwn 53rd + 54th st. Trains: N/R/W to Lexington-59th St; E/M to Lexington-53rd; 6 to 51st St)
